As an American, i dont care about your opinion on whether or not you think I should or shouldnt carry a gun. No one, including my wife, ever knows. But you bet your ass, if we end up in a situation where I have to pull it, everyone with and around me will be damn glad I did. However, as an American, I WILL take exception to your statement of "when will Americans learn" Its what makes this country what is. Are there other countries in the world that are better? I doubt it. But I dont know. Could the same be said when a bomb blows up a fuckin bus in England, or IED goes off in the middle east. Or car bombing in Ireland? Or tear gas in Japan? That was an ignorant statement all together. Look into the bigger picture about Newtown and some of the other goings on in the US. Its not about gun control. Its about people control. Whether the process here works or not, its meant to. That CANT be said about other parts of the world.
